I haven't heard anything back yet as well regadring my country not in the list.
I'm gonna wait till tomorrow, after that I will try to call them. Will post here if anything comes up.
They should have just put a simple text field for countru name as well, since this is a worldwide contest, they should be expecting developers from never-heard-before locations.

I just found an email from Blackberry App World Notifications with this subject:
"On April 19th BlackBerry PlayBook ships. Will one be yours?"

You know, I've heard on here several times that they would all ship at the same time as well, however, the email for the confirmation of the order seems to state otherwise:
We appreciate your patience, as tablets will ship as soon as they are ready and commercially available in your region. You'll receive notification when your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet is about to ship.
So.... I dunno? Here's to hoping they DO all ship at the same time for you international developers out there, but I'd be half tempted to send it to a family member in the US's house like mentioned before just in case.

Just an update to the issue regarding country not in Countries drop-down list on the PlayBook shipping form.
Mike Kirkup has just quickly replied to my question regarding this issue.
Congratulations on your success in getting a free PlayBook. Appreciate you submitting your application and hope you submit many more. We apologize for missing your country and the country of your colleague. We will be updating the form tomorrow to include these countries to enable you to ship your device.
See the at the original post.
